I have a resident interested in a developing a talk for us on harms associated with common diagnostics and therapeutics, like antibiotics, narcotics, and CT imaging. This can be independent of but can relate to errors in over-diagnosis.

Does anyone have any references they would recommend for creating such a talk? For any copyrighted material, I can just take the information and take care of obtaining the article.

Thank you,
